Commodore: Back to the Future

Holy Batman!

Yes indeed, it's too good to be true, but one of the classic computer hardware manufacturers has come back from the digital grave as the manufacturer of "high specification" gaming computers. 

Yes, we're talking about Commodore, which launched the best-selling personal computer of the late 20th century some 25 years ago. Commodore's C64 defined the early computer games experience for millions of people worldwide -- and the whole computer experience for that matter.

Her'es more on the C64 from the Computer History Museum (and thanks for photo): The C64 sold for $595, came with 64KB of RAM and featured impressive graphics. Thousands of software titles were released over the lifespan of the C64. By the time the C64 was discontinued in 1993, it had sold more than 22 million units and is recognized by the 2006 Guinness Book of World Records as the greatest selling single computer model of all time.

The next-gen? It's all going to be revealed this month. Want more; click here.
